Description

It's 1938, and the tentacles of Hitler's terrifying Third Reich have commenced their stranglehold on Europe. The Nazi empire will soon be clean of all tainted bloodlines...including vampires. London's ancient tribunal of vampires is aghast at the destruction. They resolve to send their most formidable members - millennials that have lived over 1000 years, gaining them powers that make them close to invulnerable - to infiltrate and destroy the Nazi war machine. The beautiful millennial Brigit is loath to leave her vampire lover Eamon, but her powers are needed if the mission is to have any chance of success. His relative youth makes him unsuitable to go and his duty to Brigit is best served from afar, by reinforcing her spirit with memories of their passion. As the millennials attempt to sabotage Hitler's plans, they discover that the Nazis are more monstrous than they'd ever imagined. Forced to take bolder steps, they soon attract the attention of specially-trained Nazi vampire hunters.
Exposed, deep inside enemy territory, with vicious hunters at her heels, Brigit is forced to try a daring escape from the continent, with precious cargo that marks the only hope of salvaging their mission.
